QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
How is Money Insured at FMFCU?
Deposits are insured by the National Credit Union Administration, a federal agency that charters and supervises federal credit unions and insures savings in federal and most state-chartered credit unions across the country. NCUA insures these deposits through the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), a federal fund backed by the full faith and credit of the United States Government. Coverage is very similar to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) that insures deposits at banks.
No member has lost one cent of NCUA-insured funds as a result of credit union failures. Although failures are rare, NCUA would cover your share amounts dollar for dollar up to insurance limits.
What is NCUA’s Insurance Coverage for Credit Unions?
The National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) provides all members of federally insured credit unions with $250,000 in coverage for their single ownership accounts. Additional coverage is available for joint accounts and Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs). For a complete explanation, read the NCUA publication on how your accounts are federally insured.
